Our Trust educates 8,000 children across 14 schools throughout Norfolk and Suffolk. We believe every child deserves an excellent education and we are proud to support schools in some of the most deprived areas of the country.
We want to appoint an outstanding leader for the next phase of our development, building on the achievements of our inspirational founding CEO, Dame Rachel de Souza who becomes the Children’s Commissioner for England. The Trust is in a very strong position, but, there are many areas that we believe the new CEO can drive the Trust forward to even higher levels. Balancing the curriculum so that it works for students of all abilities and continuing to narrow the attainment gap between Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium students, are just two of our priorities. Alongside this, we believe we can continue to grow and further impact the quality of education across the East of England. Innovation, investment, exceptional leadership and a continuous striving for improvement are key elements of this.
With an exceptional track record of leadership in schools/academies, you will share our ambitions for students and the organisation as a whole. Your ability to think strategically alongside your influencing skills will set you apart. Emotional intelligence and exceptional people skills are vital in such a high-profile role, within which you will need to inspire confidence within and outside the Trust. There is plenty of scope for bold leadership and imagination as we look to serve a wide range of needs – where young people realise their potential regardless of background.
If you feel you have the skills and expertise to lead us to further success, then we would like to hear from you.

Closing date: Monday 1st February 2021.
